NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
430 PM CDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Discussion...quiet the active day today. Strong jet streak came 
across the region and combined with an unstable environment along 
with with multiple boundaries and produced a Stout line of thunderstorms and rain that 
brought hail and wind damage to numerous areas east of I-55. Bulk 
of the activity has pushed east but there are still some lingering 
rain showers and even an embedded thunderstorms and rain or two back west that will impact 
southern portions of the area through early this evn. 


Complicated forecast in store the next 3 days. A very weak front will 
move into the region tomorrow and stall over the area. At the 
same time short wave ridging will occur along with a stouter cap in 
place. One last thing moisture to work with will be far lower than 
previous days and all of this should help suppress activity. That 
said we will be much warmer tomorrow and another jet streak could 
come across the region. At the very least we could be under the 
rrq of a 140kt jet core. This could be just enough to get just 
one or two storms going and they will definitely have the 
potential to become severe. That said tomorrow should be far 
quieter than today but things will likely change for the worse Monday 
and Monday night. 


Heading into Monday our front will still stalled over the region 
could become the focus for numerous rain showers and thunderstorms and rain. Closed low over 
The Four Corners sun will track east twrds the Southern Plains Monday and 
Monday night. This will nudge the ridge off to the east as well 
putting the region under more favorable SW flow aloft. At the 
same time this will lead to a weak surface low developing and moving 
twrds the nctrl Gulf. Moisture will quickly return in advance of 
this and with the combination of increasing lift over the region 
and forcing/focus at the surface widespread convection should have 
little problem developing by afternoon. As for strong to severe...the way 
things have gone the last few days the environment seems to be 
rather supportive of at least a few severe storms. The strongest 
storms will likely develop well to our west but do expect some of 
these to move into our region late Monday. 


Rain could linger well into Tuesday as the closed low slowly works 
east into the Lower/Middle MS valley. As we head into the middle 
portions of the week the low will open up and push east putting 
the region under much drier northwest flow leading to a much quieter 
second half of the work week. One caveat...the GFS is once again 
trying to break off a piece of the old cut off low and closing it 
off over the Gulf south leading to a cool wet forecast. Like previous forecast 
have opted to discount this and kept the cooler and drier forecast 
but will see if this trend continues and if any other models grab 
onto it. /Cab/ 


&& 


Aviation...monitoring convection moving across the area that has 
had gusts to 40 knots at several terminals. Anticipate threat of 
thunder will have diminished at all forecast terminals by 21z. 
Expect VFR conditions after convection departs...and these 
conditions should continue through about 06z. MVFR to IFR ceilings 
could affect most terminals after 06z...but winds may stay just 
high enough to prevent widespread fog. Little...if 
any...convection expected during the daylight hours on 
Sunday...and will not carry a mention in the forecast. 




&& 


Marine...predominate southerly winds will continue through 
tomorrow. Still looks like the next system to affect the coastal 
waters will be Monday and Tuesday. A surface low will will develop off 
the northeast Texas coast and move near our coast. Winds will 
increase ahead of the surface low from the southeast to 15-20kts. As 
the low moves east Tuesday northwest winds will quickly move in behind it 
and rise to 20-25 knots with higher gusts. Wind speeds are not 
expected to ease below 15-20kts until Thursday night.
